Electric fuel costs decrease

Fayetteville Public Utilities (FPU) announced this week that the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) total monthly fuel cost will decrease slightly this month.

Residential consumers who use the household average of 1,330 kilowatts can expect to see a change from their October electric bill of $144.32 to $144.24 in November; the decrease for the average 1,330 kilowatt use is 8 cents.

TVA states that the overall average fuel cost rate is approximately 8% higher than the three-year average for November. The November fuel costs are impacted by TVA’s higher than expected sales for the last quarter of their fiscal year and lower expectations for hydro generation.

“With cooler temperatures on the way, customers will typically increase their energy use,” says FPU’s CEO and General Manager Britt Dye. “They may not notice a decrease effect in their total utility bill despite the decrease in the fuel cost amount.”
